We’re pleased to pull the cover off Web Worker Daily’s site makeover tonight. The lighter background combined with a wider main column width should give a fresher reading experience. Plus, we’ve added a box with featured articles at the top so you’ll be sure to find our most important content. The design comes to us from ACS. Thanks guys.

As we transition over to the new design, you might see some inconsistencies or outright problems, so please bear with us for the next few days.

If you have a chance, browse on over to the mothership GigaOM to see how silverorange has transformed that site.

As before, you can subscribe to all the content from the GigaNet sites — GigaOM for tech news, NewTeeVee for online video, Earth2Tech for green technology, and Web Worker Daily for how the web changes work — via our network RSS feed.

  6. Usually I’m all for a redesign, but I’m deeply saddened to see the old look go. What first drew me to WWD was the bourgeois look and tie-in with the name. I don’t really get that with this design.

    Not that it’s a bad design; don’t get me wrong. It’s just that this kind of takes away from what I perceived to be the branding.

  7. Love it!

    The old design was sweet, but this is much cleaner.

  8. I agree very clean and easy to take in design, which is what you need if you’re coming back very regularly.

    I’m also thinking its a bit sad to see the old red revolutionary design go but progress is inevitable. Onward and upward.

    Can you provide feedback as to how the stats roll out over the next month? Maybe? I’m always curious as to whether redesigns significantly affect traffic on given sites. Some may and others may not.

    Good luck with it and congrats on the new set of clothes WWD. Cheers.

  9. I also really liked the old style too.
    Maybe the coders could put a switch in so you could have the option choose either. ha

  10. Beige? Not my cup of tea.

    It reminds me of the sameness of the suburbs. Row upon row of houses with tan siding and just slightly different shades of hunter green for trim.
